Open Theodicy: Can Open Theism Answer The Problem Of Evil?, Nicholas Schoon 2018 Olivet Nazarene University

Open Theodicy: Can Open Theism Answer The Problem Of Evil?, Nicholas Schoon

Scholar Week 2016 - present

In the summer of 2005, people living in the residential areas surrounding the Gulf of Mexico would have their lives changed forever. Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast, resulting in over 1,000 fatalities and displacing millions of others. The category 5 major hurricane is recorded as one of the costliest and deadliest storms in United States history. While many are at a loss for words at such a devastation, one common question is echoed from the mouths of those in disbelief: “Where was God?” “Why did this happen?” “Why didn’t he prevent this from happening?” It seems common ...

Sacred Sounds: A Compassionate Listening Guide To Musical Worship, Madison Blonquist 2018 Brigham Young University

Sacred Sounds: A Compassionate Listening Guide To Musical Worship, Madison Blonquist

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Sacred Sounds was a collaborative, multimedia exhibition that showed in the Brigham Young University Harold B. Lee Library Level 1 Gallery from November 10, 2017-February 2, 2018. Its primary objective was to cultivate empathy among the three Abrahamic religions through the lens of music. While this project may communicate the overall vision of the curator, it was deeply collaborative and involved the creative contributions from several campus departments and drew upon the insights of leaders from local congregations. The following documentation is a portfolio of the exhibition space and its public reception. This project was made possible with generous funding ...

The Parallels Between Art Therapy And Christianity: Integrating Identities As A Christian And An Art Therapist, Kendal Hansen

Madness And Hysteria: Social Control In Early Modern Spain, Jackie Everetts 2018 Ohio Wesleyan University

Madness And Hysteria: Social Control In Early Modern Spain, Jackie Everetts

Student Symposium

This presentation will critically examine “hysteria” as an example of the influence of a male-dominant perspective on women in early modern Spain, particularly from the mid-1400s to the late 1500s. Analyzing the exemplary case of Juana I of Castilla, it will discuss possible contributing factors that may have led a woman to exhibit symptoms of hysteria as a mental disorder, as well as the social ramifications of hysteria as a means of controlling women. Juana I was the daughter of the one of the most influential queens of Spain, Isabel I la Catolica, and the mother of Carlos V the ...


Juana I Of Castile And Maria Pacheco: Leadership And Power In Early Modern Spain, Abigail Connell 2018 Ohio Wesleyan University

Juana I Of Castile And Maria Pacheco: Leadership And Power In Early Modern Spain, Abigail Connell

Student Symposium

This presentation will discuss the relationship between Queen Juana of Castile and Maria Pacheco and their involvement in the War of the Comuneros. The War of the Comuneros was a Spanish insurrection in the early 1520s led by Maria Pacheco’s husband, Juan de Padillas. They fought against King Charles V, Juana’s son, who took her throne because she was supposedly mentally unfit to rule. I will argue that the Spanish queen, better known as “Juana the Mad,” had a dual relationship both with Maria Pacheco and the Comuneros in general. I will use both early modern period writing ...


Dissecting The Ring Of The Dove, Adrian Burr 2018 Ohio Wesleyan University

Dissecting The Ring Of The Dove, Adrian Burr

Student Symposium

This past semester I studied abroad in Salamanca, Spain, and while I was there I was able to visit the incredibly vibrant city of Cordoba. Cordoba was a great center of political power and cultural exchange under medieval Muslim rule. This semester I continued exploring both the history of Cordoba and this period of Spanish history in a directed reading. For this student symposium, I will dissect an excerpt from The Ring of the Dove, an 11th century treatise on love written by the Muslim poet and philosopher Ibn Hazm, who was born and raised in Cordoba. Upon first reading ...


The Role Of The Midwife In Hapsburg Spain, Grace Jones 2018 Ohio Wesleyan University

The Role Of The Midwife In Hapsburg Spain, Grace Jones

Student Symposium

The Holy Roman Empire during the early modern period (14th and 15th centuries) accounted for several countries within central Europe that fell under the mandate of the Roman Catholic Church. Of the many royal families that ruled these countries, The Hapsburg family maintained a position as Holy Roman Emperor for many consecutive years, and gained majority of their favor and power through political marriages and the children that came from these unions. Gender roles during the 14th-16th century were very strictly defined, with women following roles set out through religious mandate and the misogynistic teachings of male philosophers. The role ...


Retrospective Implementation Of Faceted Vocabularies For Music, Casey Mullin 2018 Western Washington University

Retrospective Implementation Of Faceted Vocabularies For Music, Casey Mullin

Casey A. Mullin

This document describes the rationale and process for automatically generating faceted data for inclusion in descriptive metadata for music resources (e.g., MARC bibliographic and authority records). Over the past several years, MLA has collaborated with Gary Strawn of Northwestern University to develop specifications for generating faceted terms based on the presence of existing legacy metadata (mostly Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH)). Although implementation of newly-developed faceted vocabularies by music catalogers in current cataloging has reached a critical mass, the benefits of access to music resources offered by these new vocabularies will not be fully realized until a preponderance ...

Reading Stanley Fish On Milton Or Reading Milton: Which Do You Prefer To Do?, Rebecca Belcher-Rankin 2018 Olivet Nazarene University

Reading Stanley Fish On Milton Or Reading Milton: Which Do You Prefer To Do?, Rebecca Belcher-Rankin

Scholar Week 2016 - present

“Perhaps a class in literary theory will not be taught in the future,” I said, to which my colleague replied, “I’ve been wanting to talk to you about that. . . .” She believed that theory came between the writer’s work and the reader, interfering with a pure reading. Although the movement to let literature “speak for itself” is growing, undergraduates should learn theory because it opens texts in a variety of ways, it makes students aware of their own cultural approach, and, according to theorist Terry Eagleton, it allows for a “democratic impulse” in the study of literature. Writers of ...
